"Huge pot" of money will save Moyes' United career

Published Add your comment

Former Manchester United star Gary Neville believes that under pressure boss David Moyes will be given all the financial help he needs to turn his club’s fortunes around, according to talkSPORT.

Moyes hasn’t fared very well thus far during his tenure at Old Trafford, and a disappointing season sees them sitting in 6th place in the Premier League table, 15 points away from Chelsea who sit top.

As such rumours have frequently surfaced that the Scot would potentially face the axe if he failed to turn things around before the summer. However Neville is confident that Moyes can remain at the club for the long term, and thinks he has all the backing he needs to be successful.

"Everyone always wants to look for the one reason [for failure] and in football these days, if you look at most clubs, it gets put on the manager and they usually get sacked," he said.

"Man United are very different and David Moyes will get the time he deserves to come to terms with things. It’s always been the same.

"Usually the manager is the fall guy for it and he’s the one who will get the most criticism. The club is huge and the task is huge but the club are supporting him by signing Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini."

The Red Devils legend then went on to point towards the expected cash windfall Moyes could have to play with as being a sign of the board’s continued support to the post-Sir Alex Ferguson project.

"There is talk of more serious investment in the squad in the summer," he added.

"Ed Woodward did his speech to the shareholders a couple of weeks ago and said there was a huge pot of money there to be spent and help Manchester United invest in the team and add to the current players they have got."
